How well this item performed in its intended use, and beyond.
The Good: I recently received this jacket and was very impressed with the overall simplistic design, material, and fit. I'm 6'1", 175lbs, 42" chest and the Large is a great fit with room for light layering. I ordered the Acid Green color since I have plenty of black jackets already. The color is a bit brighter in person, but that is fun for me since I really only plan on using this jacket in the woods. The fabric is lightweight and stretchy and feels nice against the skin. Blocks the wind very nicely too. Easily packs into either hand pocket. All around, love it. It will be in my pack for every hike.
The Misleading: -There is no port for headphones as described, but I don't own an mp3 player anyways, so no biggie for me. -The chest pocket is much smaller than it appears in the picture. It looks, from the outside, that the pocket will extend all the way to the stitching, near the left arm, just like every other chest pocket...ever. However, it does not. On the inside, MH has decided to make the pocket about the size of a candy bar. They have stitched it to a much smaller dimension, and this is blatant when you look inside the jacket and can see the stitches. The majority of the pocket has been sealed off, rendering it rather useless. I cannot even fit a pair of sunglasses in the chest pocket. Why did you do this MH? It seems silly to make such a small pocket when it appears to be much larger
I would recommend this product.
